Hello, guys! Hope you are all well. Most photographers usually ask me what type of gears I use and I truly never like this question. Because at the end of the day, it’s not about the gear, it’s about what you can do with it. We photographers forget that the camera does not shoot itself. So we should not be overwhelmed with the fancy equipment. One should use her gear to its maximum to produce the best result from that particular gear. We should also develop aesthetically in our photography. That is what is going to make one stand out as a photographer. Find the cameras I have used in the past here.
I have very few equipment. I am only going to list the main equipment. Of course, I have things like light stands, chargers, memory cards, computer, backpack etc. but that is a discussion for another day or something you are going to be seeing in my BTS Videos. I will be reviewing equipment in the future but for now, let me just give you the list. This equipment list will also be useful to people starting photography.
My Photography Equipment
Nikon D 7200. Yes! I only have one body that is what I have been using in the past year. If I need to shoot events or need two cameras for some reasons then I rent.
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm 1:1.8 G. 90% of my shoots I use this lens.
Tamron SP 17 – 50 mm f/2.8 – I use this mostly for events and wide angle shoots when doing portraits.
Flash / Speedlight
2 Alturas Photo Flash – 1 is TTL flash and 1 is Manual. Also I have two wireless triggers and one receiver. I intend to add two more flashes this year.
Video Light – No brand. Chinese version.
Lambency Diffuser – No brand. Chinese version.
Reflector. No Brand. Chinese Version.
2 White shoot through umbrellas – No Brand Chinese Version.
Octagon Soft box – No Brand. Chinese Version.
Beauty Disk – No Brand. Chinese Version.
The No Brands – (Chinese Version) have been working fine for me and still doesn’t break my wallet. The only thing I have had minor problems with is the video light but then again it has been knocked way too many times so I expect it to react that way. I try and save money all the time and buy gears which I only truly need.
There you have it those are the main equipment that I use in my shoots and have been using for the past year. What are the main equipment that you have? Does it get the job done for you?
